Topics I've Started

Manipulating underwater subjects

05 December 2015 - 01:20 AM

Some time ago a thread was started on UWMP about the increasing number of obviously arranged macro shots getting a very high number of likes on the site (ballooning octopus, boxer crabs sitting nicely in sea shells or on leather corals, crinoid shrimp on sponges or on nudibranchs and so on). Administrators from UWMP did not take a clear stand on the issue, which in itself is remarkable. Now, however, something even weirder is happening. A number of members that posted support for a non-manipulation view on underwater photography has been removed from UWMP! No reason for this and no replies to questions about the rationale behind this selective exclusion principle has been given. I believe that most of the persons excluded can live with that. The scary thing is what this indicates about the views of UWMP admins and site owner. It is after all a big site with 35 000 members or so, arranging meetings and competitions on a regular basis, giving UWMP quite some influence on trends in underwater macro photography.
